An Elegant Easter Island Retreat Awaits at Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island

This Easter, Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island welcomes travellers searching for a tranquil beachside escape in the heart of the Indian Ocean. From 28 March to 01 April 2024, this contemporary all-villa resort unveils an array of family-centric offerings, harmoniously blending timeless luxury with cherished moments. 

Timeless Festive Memories for Families 

Embark on an Easter odyssey with a symphony of culinary journeys crafted by the resort’s talented team. Capture moments of shared laughter and joy with interactive experiences, mastering the art of creating authentic Indian dishes, crafting tantalising cocktails, or relishing refreshing mocktails. Opt for a sun-kissed family sandbank picnic or an enchanting sunset wine tasting. On Good Friday, experience the magic of gliding through the ocean on a sunset cruise aboard a glamorous yacht, followed by a family beach dinner featuring seafood mezze delights. 

Easter Sunday takes the spotlight at Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island, beginning with a feastful breakfast at the pool-side GLOW restaurant. Families then dive into a day of celebration at the infinity pool of the resort’s beach club restaurant, Shimmers, with a family pool party accompanied by a live DJ, delicious finger bites and house-made popsicles. As the day unfolds, a sophisticated beachfront cocktail party and gala dinner set the stage, transforming the island to an Easter wonderland, showcasing a sumptuous spread including smoky and grilled goodness, Japanese-Peruvian fusion delectations, a dedicated kids’ buffet, and more festive delicacies. The week is punctuated by Easter-themed sweet treats at the resort’s two favourite spots of all ages – CafĂ© Lounge, a coffee house known for its breathtaking sunset view, and Gelateria, an ice cream shop adored for its collection of over 36 flavours of house-made artisan ice cream and frozen yoghurt. 

For a holiday experience that transcends the ordinary, the ultimate Easter package beckons. Starting the day with an opulent floating breakfast in the villa’s private pool, then hop to a nearby sandbank for a picturesque picnic. As the afternoon sun bathes the island in warm hues, families can unwind with a sunset wine-tasting experience. The day concludes with a beachside private BBQ dinner set against the backdrop of the Maldivian night sky.

Tailored Wonders for the Young Explorers 

Little travellers are in for a treat with a range of exciting Easter activities. From an Easter egg decoration class to Easter Olympics, the island, with its white powdery sand beach and lush surroundings, serves as a natural Easter playground for them. The resort’s ocean-inspired creative space, MURACA Art Studio, unfolds its artful magic, offering jar candle making, wood art, egg carton chick craft making, charades, and bunny mask making. Join a marine talk hosted by the island’s resident Marine Biologist or enjoy an al fresco cinema playing classic Easter family films. Get up close to sea life through the large windows of a semi-submarine; parents and children of all ages will be impressed by the striking underwater world around Olhahali Island. 

Inhale Beautiful New Beginnings 

Jumeirah Maldives Olhahali Island’s Talise Spa is an overwater sanctuary for unwinding in the spirit of this occasion of renewal. This secluded oasis presents exclusive experiences for the entire family, from an out-of-the-ordinary splash Zumba inspired by hopping bunnies to stretching sessions on the mesmerising roof terrace overlooking the sea, all guided by the resident fitness pro. Families are granted a blissful opportunity to bond and restore with a pampering one-hour massage and a mini facial for both the parents and the little one. Mother and daughter can learn from the seasoned therapist how to create their own exfoliating scrub, which the Talise Spa team will use to revitalise their skin, followed by a 60-minute Balinese massage.
